Issue 01: First Impressions

First impressions
editorial, BRANDING

Sept '16 - April '17

"First Impressions" is InPrint Magazine's first annual issue! Officially, my role in this project was to obtain funding and publicity for our magazine, so that we could print them and also sell well. However, behind the scenes, I did a little bit of everything (photography, interviewing, transcribing, editing, critiquing, brainstorming, etc) wherever I was needed.

01: theme

After endless sessions of brainstorming, we settled on the theme “first impressions”, fitting for our first issue! In using our magazine as a platform to feature amazing individuals from the design community, we hoped this issue would introduce the design community to one another

This issue was our "first impression" to the world of design at Davis.
